We have lived in Egypt for about 6 years and this is the best event for experiencing ancient Egypt. Ask your hotel to confirm you have the right time for the English translation because a restaurant manager told us that sometimes they change the times...More

The show's garbage; poor projection, poor sound, sub-standard effects. It was probably impressive 15 years ago and I know that Egypt's had a hard time economically in recent years, but still.... The best bit is the atmospheric night-time walk through the temple to the show...More

Old sound system, can barely understand in certain areas. Lots of walking mad standing. Aura in the dark is nice though.

The Temple of Karnak is spectacular, awesome, wonderful .... like all the temples between Aswan and Luxor. But the sound and light show was a waste of money ... apart from getting nice photos of parts of the temple lit up

Be prepared to be disappointed by the poor quality of the Sound and Light Show at Karnak Temple, Luxor. The frequent shifting of the venue inside the Temple Complex and asking the audience to move every ten minutes is ill conceived. The last half an...More

Would be reasonably good show in 1984. Don’t use the audio guides, they are RadioShack quality...from 1980’s. They need a serious update, so if you want to spend the money to help in restoration of the temple(which is amazing in the daytime) then go support.
